A technique to feel how fixing swayback to neutral spine shifts effort from the lower spine to the abdominal muscles. My student Dennis demonstrates. First he stands in swayback and presses a fist firmly against the wall, simulating a punch with swayback spine - noted by the red arrow and frowny face. Then he corrects the swayback to neutral spine - green arrow pointing to the smaller lumbar curve, plus smile icon. When you do this, the first thing you would notice if you do this correctly, is lower back pinching or pressure from swayback stops. You should notice a stronger push against the wall and new strength in your arm and upper body. You will feel the muscles in your trunk and abdomen working.
